Haphazard Minds

On April 12, 2008 award winning science writer Carl Zimmer went on Bloggingheads.tv and talked with Gary Marcus, NYU psychologist (author of the new book Kluge: The Haphazzard Constrcution of the Human Mind) about the evolution of human cognition.

Zimmer also has a fascinating new book coming out May 6, 2008 called Microcosm: E. coli and the New Science of Life
